Review: The Tippmann Triumph eXT is definitely worth the money. This gun is very fast and undeniably very accurate at a decent range. It is light and easily maneuverable, perfect for any type of player. I have an SSL-200 electronic loader on it and it feeds perfectly for the 12 and 15 safety full auto modes, if you do purchase this gun you will need a good hopper. I will be upgrading the stock 11" barrel to a new Tippmann Werks Sniper 14" barrel, but for now even the stock barrel is usable to play with. This is the perfect gun for someone upgrading from semi-auto to electronic or who wants a reliable marker at a really affordable price. People complain about the look of the eXT but I think it's wicked cool especially with the Triumph hopper on it and a longer barrel.. just give it a chance and you might find that you really do like this gun.

AFTER DAY OF PLAY>>>

Alright so I went out in the freezing cold weather on New Years Eve all day long with 3 of my teammates with my Triumph. I had the SSL-200 loader on it and the stock barrel. I was shooting cheap paint and had a full 20oz. co2 tank. This gun shot amazingly. It was really quick and maneuverable as I said above, easy to snap, fire off bursts, and firefights were made much easier with the electronic trigger. Break outs were nice because you can walk this gun easily and while running it is light and sleek. I went out only getting shot twice the entire day, and I thank this new gun of mine. Even my teammate, who was very skeptical, tried it and said "Man I defnitely have a new opinion on that gun." And I knew then that it was perfect for just about anyone. I ran almost 2 batteries out of it though, but I had been using the gun prior to that day and had used up some of the battery then. So all in all, with the right hopper to feed this marker, you can have an awesome time with no breaks or trouble, even with a stock barrel. This gun is actually very quiet and does not have very much blowback at all, unlike what some others had been saying. I finished the day WITH air left in my 20oz. tank, so if you're wondering about usage, don't worry at all. If you want a great gun at a great price, then the Triumph eXT is perfect. You will enjoy it.
Conclusion: The Triumph eXT is definitely worth the money and with the right couple upgrades, you could have yourself a very competitive gun. Check it out.

Yeah but here is some good news - now it's available in all black on ActionVillage. Yehaw! It looks a lot less like the inbred son of a nerf gun and a cordless drill. I might get one actually.

awesome man im sure youll find it to be a reliable gun, but i must say watch out for the trigger guard, i snapped it (it was my fault tho, not the gun) but yea Tippmann got a new one to me within a week. so comment back if you get one and tell me how you like it.

Thats a pretty ugly gun.

It may look ugly but its performance could outweigh its looks. I'm waiting for mine to come in, and I'll write a review once I start playing with it.

I'm pretty sure the people at tippmann got together and tried to come up with the ugliest gun known to mankind...they were sucessful.
